9G experienced a day with Northern Rail as part of the school careers’ programme. The day started at Preston Station where they were given a tour of the station by Erin Malone, the HR Advisor, and then the journey began by boarding the Northern Rail train to Manchester Piccadilly. During their journey on the train, pupils took part in a discussion on different job roles and career paths and enjoyed taking part in the Northern Rail quiz.
They were then met by the HR staff from Northern Rail at Manchester Piccadilly, who talked about all the different job opportunities within the company. Pupils were overwhelmed with the many job prospects and apprenticeships Northern Rail have to offer.
The next stop was the Northern Rail Newton Heath Engineering depot where the pupils enjoyed the tour of the depot and were informed about the different job roles within various departments.
Many thanks to the staff at Northern Rail and Erin Malone for arranging this valuable experience for our Year 9’s.
